right on JB. i like how you are pushing hard to get these boats out. and all of the plugs and molds etc look of the highest quality and craftsmanship. keep it up. you already have a long list and you haven't even completed 1 boat yet.

Hull is skinned and they are starting to lay in the glass and core for infusion.

the guy down in the hull is 6' 6" for reference.

Looking good!

This thing looks pretty cool! I'm sorry If I missed it (I don't have the patience to read through 24 pages this morning) but what is draft going to be realistically? With what power?

I would say the biggest advantage of coming a line of skiffs is the most efficient use of available space. Certainly looks like they are maximizing every cubic inch of space in this boat. That will be a huge benefit to the customer. Being able to customize that space to organize stowed items will be just as important

Big day for Cayo. Here is a time lapse video of Hull #1 infusion.

I am happy to see businesses innovating and trying something new. I do not see it happening enough. Cant wait to see the finished product and get the performance reports.

bulk heads went in yesterday. The prototype trailer from Ameritrail will be there mid next week. JB is going to wait until the trailer is there to pull the hull. 300r mercs scheduled to deliver mid August.

When I first put my deposit in JB said his goal is to have the first boat complete by October. I think vectorworks is about a month behind right now so that will probably push the October date out.

Tagged. I'm in the market right now for a 25 to 27 cat. Been looking hard at prowlers. But this looks promosing.
